're hearing to hear from president mahmoud ahmadinejad at the u.n. when he starts speaking, we want to take part of that address. if we jump out, forgive me, but we want to make sure we get that. boidreut w n campaign ad, both featuring romney's 41% remarks. i want to get everybody up to speed. take a look. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle-class families. the difference is my policies will make things bter for them. haneo are on n welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good paying job. >> when mitt romney dismissed 47% of americans for not pulling thr we, hettd millions of hard-working people making $25,000, $35,000, $45,000 a year. romney paid 14% on taxes in over $13 million in income. >>> ben, all along people say the road to pennsylvania avenue goes through oo a your campgn rortey sees this as game over. that is for mitt romney because of the new polling that's out today, putting president ahead by ten points. a lot of people, though, would say that those polls could be wrong and inflated. but what are you d
to the clinton global initiative and sat down with education nation. president obama spoke to the u.n. general assembly, follow that, abc aired an interview he and the first lady taped for "the view." the meeting of the united nations general assembly has put foreign policy front and center. president obama used the ait tack on the u.s. consulate in libya and the death on ambassador stevens to make the case for a broader philosophy regarding the future of the relations between the middle east and the west. >> the events of the last two weeks also speaks to the need for all of us to honestly address the tensions between the west and the arab world that is moving towards democracy. >> while he made clear that the video that sparked the violence was not reflective of american values the president defended the u.s. response and underscored that free speech is essential to prosperity and to peace. >> as president of our country, and commander in chief of our military, i accept that people are going to call me awful things every day. and i will always defend their right to do so. >> the president th
look at prior presidents at this u.n. meeting, they didn't meet with any leaders either. >> well, i -- vin? >> governor rendell saying, president clinton is saying. on the other hand this is not just any moment. this is a moment of greatest foreign policy crisis in this administration. so for him to decide that the campaign is more important because he'd have to meet with too many people in new york doesn't fly with me. although a lot of good news for the president in the polls, we've established that, the foreign policy front is not one. "the wall street journal" poll shows he's seen a precip does drop in his handling of foreign policy and that could become an ish. >> >> one problem with that, and that is governor romney when asked what he would do differently, doesn't come up with a very cogent or believable answer. >> before i let you go, ed rendell, wanted to ask you about pennsylvania. here you've got the president up by 12 points in the latest polls. what's going on in the senate race where senator bob casey is only up by six points? >> well, i don't -- i can't answer that at
think the president on too many occasions has deferred our foreign policy leadership to the u.n. security council, to the u.n. >> egypt now with the muslim brotherhood president, pakistan highly tumultuous. >> as you can see, it's hard to get anything from these two, aside from their now redundant talking points. and it really wouldn't matter if this was just a televised debate before one of the republican primaries. but it isn't. these two want to occupy the global stage. for the president, on the other hand, this week was fraught with political land mines as he prepared to address the u.n. and here is how he decided to address the issue of iran and its nuclear ambitions. >> so let me be clear, america wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy and we believe that there is still time and space to do so, but that time is not unlimited. >> that is what international diplomacy looks like in these difficult treacherous times. but when i hear mr. romney speak about foreign affairs, i'm reminded of the words of shakespeare's mcbeth. it sounds like "a tale told by an idiot, full of
ahmadinejad is now speaking at the u.n. >> translator: he's chosen companions and all the underlying messengers. oh, god, hasten the emergence of your chosen beloved. grant him good health and victory. make us his best companions and and all those who submit to his rightfulness. mr. president and laetds and gentlemen. i thank the almighty god for being able to participate. we're gathered toque to build a better lifer for the entire community and for our nations. coming from iran, the land of glory and beauty, the land of knowledge, culture, wisdom, morality and crazele of misty sichl. the land of compassion and life. the the land of science, scholars, philosophers, masters of literature and writers, the land of -- i represent a great and proud nation that is a founder of human civilization and an inhair tore of respected universal values. i represent a conscious nation which is dedicated to the cause of peace and compassion, a nation that has experienced the agony and bitter times of the aggressions and imposed wars and profoundly values the blessing of peace and the stability. i am
action. however, that was before israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu spoke to the u.n. general assembly a short time ago complete with a unique visual aid. nbc's mike viqueira joins us live from the white house. mike, mr. netanyahu today said he's in ongoing discussion with the u.s. over exactly when and where to draw this so-called red line. mike, has anyone at the white house confirmed or denied that to you? >> reporter: no, the last we heard is no deadlines, no red lines. this has been an ongoing controversy. it bubbled up again a couple weeks ago and prime minister netanyahu once again called for a red line. as u.n. speeches go, there's nikita chew she have, yasser arafat, wile a lot of people have been deriding this prop that prime minister netanyahu is using today as sort of a cartoon initial roadrunner and coyote sort of cartoonish bomb he used as a prop, it's a deadly serious issue. there are some things the united states and prime minister netanyahu agree on, and this is iran is enriching uranium. they both agree that iran cannot be allowed to develop a nuclear bomb. w
. >>> today the u.n. general assembly will hear from iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad. it's his last time addressing the body before hitting his term limits. they're urging delegates to protest the speech and boycotts are outside. maria is live. every time we hear him rant, are we giving this guy attention. >> reporter: forgive me if i don't answer your question. we're having a few construction problems. ahmadinejad is expected to be 16 of 17 speakers. of course, as is often the case when he's here in new york, there will be large protests taking place outside the u.n. those are scheduled to take place at 11:00 a.m. and we skpeerkted to hear from high-profile speakers like rudy giuliani and mayor bloomberg. he's essentially a lame-duck president, finishing up the second of his two-four-year terms. now, just to get a little bit of insight into what we might here, president ahmadinejad gave a wide-ranging interview yesterday. one of the key issues here, of course, is iran's nuclear ambitions, and he's described it as a non-issue, characterizing it as something that the u.s. was bringing up
the president for what he said at the u.n. and talking about how we are in sync. our intelligence and military communities are on the same it timeline with respect to iranian nuclear development. and i think yesterday the president -- prime minister netanyahu drew a line which frankly the president has already drawn not with a cartoon and with that kind of a fdispla but the president has said point blank american policy is not a matter of containment, it is a matter of prevention. they will not have the ability to make a bomb. and the president is prepared to back that up. so, there is no gap here. and once again, mitt romney just as he did when he stepped out early in his comments on libya, inappropriately and wrong, he is once again inappropriately and wrongly characterizing the president's policy. >> john kerry, all fired up for debate preparation, have fun with that. >> thank you. >> have fun playing mitt romney and thank you so much. thanks for being with us today. >> thank you. >>> and up next here, israel's red line on iran. have we reached the point of no return? when will we? this is
netanyahu's speech at the u.n., but they did cover iran's ahmadinejad. host: we covered prime minister netanyahu. you can go to c-span.org now and watch it. and i believe it was live yesterday as well. caller: yeah, i was watching it on fox and said i'll go to c-span because they always have no interruptions, and i went there, and it wasn't even on, so y'all may have done it later, i don't know. but at the time i was watching it, it didn't. host: i guarantee we covered t. i guarantee you. caller: and there's one other thing i'd like to say, there's a news station i have found that really is unbiased. i mean, it democrats the truth, and i found it about three or four days, and it's on dish, 212, and it's called the blaze. host: the blaze? caller: it's on dish channel 212. i watch y'all every day. i've watched you for years. host: well, thank you. we appreciate you watching, sondra. how's the economy in alabama? caller: it's right now just about stead. i mean, i haven't seen anything really different. i love alabama. good to live here. host: thanks for calling in. joe lives in lorraine,
university law school, n.y.u. 98% of the people, let's just say 2%, maybe high-level targets, that leaves 98%, the vast majority, who are they? overwhelmingly civilians, and here is president obama. i don't think president bush would have been able to get away with this. people would have risen up around the country. but president obama, who was elected by the anti-war movement, because he was opposed to the war in iraq, hillary clinton, his democratic opponent in the primaries was for the war. i actually think that's the reason president obama is president today. that was the main difference. hillary clinton was not able to let go of the war in iraq, was not willing to say that perhaps she was wrong in voting for it till the very end when she saw she was going down. but here now president bush has inherited the war in afghanistan and continued it, and these drone wars are terrorizing populations. i encourage everyone to look at this report, "living under drones," or go to democracynow.org and see our interview. in pakistan, the people are terrorized. i'm talking about the civilian populatio
a republican and democrat agreeing on much besides that this week. and for the worst week, it's u.n. ambassador to the united nations, susan ryce. he was either not included in some of these briefings, which would be troublesome, or just thrown under the bus when she went out on the sunday shows, explaining that this was not a planned attack, and we now know it was a terrorist attack in libya. >> do you think anything's going to happen with that, with susan rice? do you think she could potentially lose her job or no? >> i don't think she'll lose her job, but i don't think we'll be seeing her much in the upcoming months. >> molly, best and worst? >> i'll give best week to todd akin, the republican senate candidate out in missouri. the deadline passed this week for him to withdraw from the race. he was under heavy, heavy pressure from so many republicans to get out. they say they couldn't possibly win. he stuck it out, he knew they'd come around and they'd give him their money and their support when they didn't have a choice, and sure enough, that's exactly what's happening. you have a lot of rep
body has ways to try to shut th whole thing down. >> the missouri reblican who has no ia hoa n's dy wois cng opponent unladylike. >>> and tammy baldwin's campaign is hitting tommy thompson for pledging to do away with medicare. the latest on those senate ras, next. ee u mro like a cayman island stingray. tonight, we'll show you why "w" just might be mitt romney's october surprise. >> i know the human being and fish can co-exist peacefully. eligible for medicare? that's a good thing, but it doesn't cover everything. the rest is up to you. so consider an aarp medicare supplement insurance plan, insured by unitedhealthcare insurance company. ke all standardized medicare supplement plans, they pick up some of what medicare doesn't pay. anve u tan of dollars in out-of-pocket costs. call today to request a free decision guide to help you better understand what medicare is all about. and which aarp medicare supplement plan works best for you. with these types of plans, any doctor or hospital that accepts medicare patients... plus, there are no networks, and you'll never need a referral to
